South American eXploration Initiative (SAXI): Stage 2
Project Number: P1061B
Status: Under Management
Inspired by the highly successful West African Exploration Initiative (WAXI) and positive results from the first stage, the SAXI program has progressed to the next stage. The overall aim of the program is to enhance the exploration potential of North-East South America through an integrated program of research and data gathering into the “anatomy” of the Guiana Shield and neighbouring terranes.
Key motivations for undertaking this initiative are to assist exploration companies in focusing their activities in areas of maximum prospectivity; help local Geological Surveys and Universities in their role of collecting and providing pre-competitive data and information; and to train local geoscientists.
The benefits from sponsoring this project include:
- Access to all data collated at local and regional scales
- Opportunity to attend seminars, workshops and training courses
- Opportunity to define future research directions in the region
